Film slate against dark background

Our goal is to facilitate greater understanding of the diverse personalities, struggles and successes that define the veteran experience through the art of documentary filmmaking. Our stories come from all branches of service, military jobs, campaigns and nations. Our filmmakers are all season professionals and artists. We have made 30 short films. By 2020, we aim to have completed 100 total.
